lyrics

Paint a pretty picture, lie inside my frame
Can’t tread all over me
Sail into the sunset on a lovers boat
I paint it to believe
Walk bereft on dazzled plains
Contemplate those giddy days

Set it up in wonderland
Love’s holiday won’t slam you in the face
Trapped inside a mind
Consoling patterns shapes
Cocooned in muffled fate
Can you whisper in my ear
Whisper in my ear a dream

Chorus:
Loves theatre closes down
Receding heart beats silent in me
Hush tones of ecstasy aches
Don’t turn around, don’t turn around
A reverie of love ablaze
Can’t find me now, can’t find me now
I paint among the ghosts

Paint a pretty picture, lie inside my frame
Can’t tread all over me
Sail into the sunset on a lovers boat
I paint it to believe
Can you whisper in my ear
Whisper in my ear a dream
Repeat Chorus
Can you whisper in my ear, whisper in my ear a dream (Rx3)
